Yeah, The MSM Really Is Out To Get Christine O'Donnell

Don't you just love it when someone in the mainstream media admits to the pervasive bias against conservatives?

Via NewsBusters, here is the transcript of a segment between Harry Smith and John Dickerson on the CBS Early Show this morning, regarding Christine O'Donnell's announcement last night that she would not do any national media interviews.  Dickerson, a CBS political analyst, admitted that O'Donnell was smart not to go on national media programs since the media wanted her to crash:
SMITH: And finally, last but not least on our list this morning, Christine O'Donnell has said she will not do any national interviews. I know that disappoints you, personally. But in real life, does this matter?

DICKERSON: Well, no, it doesn't matter, although, as you say, I'm disappointed and all of us should be. But, she's smart to do this. You know, the national media is not doing her any favors and, basically, a lot of people want her on so that she can have a car crash on air. She needs to focus on Delaware. She's got a tough run there, because she's got to reach out to independents and get outside of the narrow conservative constituency she won – that helped her win, I should say – the primary there. So she's smart to keep to her knitting and she just has to hope that voters don't penalize her for trying to kind of stay away from the national media, which might look like staying away from any kind of difficult or probing questions.

  1. Are many in the national media really scared that O'Donnell will win? I imagine most feel she has no chance anyway. But perhaps they just want the opportunity to make a conservative look foolish and hope that she rubs off on other races somehow. Oh well, glad she's keeping it low key, though she needs to nationalize the race without going national... maybe tricky, but I hope she can do it.

  2. "she just has to hope that voters don't penalize her for trying to kind of stay away from the national media, which might look like staying away from any kind of difficult or probing questions."

    My they have a high opinion of themselves.

  3. There is no national media. It is just the Democrat propaganda reading Anti American media.
    If there was a national media it would be reporting 24/7 just how bad the tax and spend leftists like Chris Coons are damaging this nation. The leftists are getting trillions of dollars worth of propaganda read by media.

  4. I feel that Americans are smarter than "they" think we are. Most see these character attacks as ammunition to vote FOR her, as was the case for Nikki Haley here in SC during the primary when Wil Folks accused her of infidelity, and good old Jake Knotts called her a "Raghead" and the resident lefty shills on The State's online comments sections harped about her as Nimrata Rawhanda Haley (Her real name, I'm sure you know she is an American of Indian descent...those lefties are some TOLERANT people, aren't they?). She won the nomination by a landslide and has a nice double-digit lead over her pasty faced competitor, ambulance chasing attorney Vince Sheheen. Folks supported her in droves thanks to the attacks. Go Christine O'Donnell!

  5. The JournOLists are trying to Palin this poor woman. I hope she makes it. We're all behind her.
